The bracers blocking the Omegas, was odd. Sure she did it in pre52, but Grail destroyed them with hers in Justice League. So is Darkseid's weaker? or another case of comic consistency?

and looks like the broken finger was healed a few panels later,  artist error? he healed? or the break wasn't that bad
Different bracers? They sure as he'll don't do the things they used to. Maybe after the merge they went back to classic unbreakable?

Yeah good point. perhaps it’s more in line with the pre52 version which has stopped the beams in the past

Well, before she even thinks about love, she blocks the Omegas and breaks his finger.

Even the context of the finger “break” makes him look substantially stronger. After barely budging from her sword slash, he lifted her with one hand—and his effort looked minimal, as the rest of his body remained still. She was not able to just immediately break free, as you would expect a peer to do. She instead leveraged her whole body and used both arms to atttack his finger. That’s mostly a showing of skill, not strength.

That was one of two times during the fight where Darkseid trapped her with one hand and she used a big attack to get out of his grip. The last time, she shouted in pain when he grabbed her wrist. On both occasions, he looked practically bored.If they were peers, they’d be evenly grappling. Instead, both times it was DS trapping her with one hand, followed by WW freeing herself with dramatic attacks.

Another comparison is the strength behind their strikes. The fight begins with WW knocking DS off balance with a sucker punch, then getting sent flying across the room and stunned by a pimpslap. In this issue, DS’s one attack sends her flying again and makes her conclude she can’t win. While WW was able to knock DS back or down, none of her attacks sent him flying.

Another indicator is their relative effort. She clearly put a lot of effort into each attack. Her speech is dramatic, filled with a need for revenge and a need to prove she doesn’t need the League to win (a hope that she discards the first time DS lands a clean punch). He just looked bored and bemused that she was trying to face him alone. While he wasn’t “holding back” per se, he clearly wasn’t taking this fight as seriously as he took the fight against Zeus.

And again, just a few issues ago teen DS brushes aside her charge with a pimpslap, then immobilized her with Omegas. That is a pretty strong indication of their relative strength levels. In fact, he may have done the same thing when he slapped her at the start of this fight, if Grail hadn’t jumped in, offering to finish WW instead.

Overall, it’s like his Powergirl showing. It’s a low showing, but it doesn’t contradict his ability to bust a team with WW on it when he’s putting in his best effort.

Not true. She never lost to Teen ds because the fight was interrupted.

Now for this fight. She fought him, took hits, blocked Omega Beams at blank point range. blocked his punch, and the "finger" break like you put it, all that without Gods helping her. Maybe she wouldn't have won at the end with just her physical power. But all those things i mentioned, she did them without help. Some of you truly love to assume that she can't even put up a fight against the top names. But if this was superman. Many of you wouldn't be saying oh no, superman shouldn't be capable of doing this against a team buster.

Of course he lifted her with one hand. she is not super heavy. LOL.  And please let's leave Powergirl out of this. Because Wonder Woman>Powergirl in power, then you have the skills and gear factor. She has more going for her than pg.

Wonder Woman at standard levels is more competent against a super fast Skyfathers in physical combat than say Hercules or Silver Surfer are against Thanos. Ill take it.

That’s because Thanos is well above that.

That’s like saying that the U.S. is a pale imitation of Britain.
